It's good to know that he's updating but everyone does have a point with all of the update now and crap if the mod doesn't get updated then another update will take place in minecraft and the update work will take even longer....wait......oh well I guess it really doesn't make a difference :s Well I'm just glad he's working on it so he can take as long as he wants
You know its not as difficult as you think to update a mod yourself and according to the developer's guidelines its perfectly fine as long as you keep it to yourself:

4. DERIVATIVE WORKS/MODIFICATION
This mod is provided freely and may be decompiled and modified for private use, either with a decompiler or a bytecode editor. Public distribution of modified versions of this MOD require advance written permission of the OWNER and may be subject to certain terms.
I not going to comment on whether or not I, personally, have an unofficially updated version of this mod as that would be irrelevant and useless as I would not be allowed to share the hypothetically updated thing with anyone :3
As a 2nd year Java programming student I will however recommend to anyone with little to some experience in java to try updating old mods like this that give permission for such actions for personal use and as a test of your knowledge and understanding of the code, because lets face it: most 'modders' start off with the same boring mods that they followed a tutorial on youtube to do, updating actually takes a bit more skill, creativity and you can throw in some originality in there while you're cleaning up someones messy/outdated code (not a comment on freakstritch's coding in anyway).
Just food for thought guys.
And seeing as how freakstritch's last post on the subject of updated was on the 2nd of January and said, paraphrasing slightly;
He took some time off for the holidays and is "Back on the case", the mod is being updated and will be re-released when its re-released.
